RMT to step up its campaigning for better pensions for its members

TRANSPORT union RMT will take on the scourge of pensioner poverty by stepping up its campaign for good pensions for members.

Final salary schemes have come under increased attack in recent years, but RMT says that it will push for new schemes to be opened. 

Speaking about the successful motion, general secretary Mick Lynch said: “The RMT continues to campaign to protect and to improve our members’ occupational pension arrangements across the union.

“This is illustrated recently with successful industrial action ballots at Hull Trains and LUL where management and government are attacking our members’ final salary benefits.

“We will campaign alongside our retired members’ section and the National Pensioners Convention to improve working people’s retirement expectations by improving the basic state pension, a key element of working-class peoples’ retirement income.”
